rhetoric, threatening to rain death and destruction on the u.s. and south korea, kim jong un seems to have taken a day off. perhaps the north korean leader ran out of things to say. north korea had warned saturday that the korean peninsula had entered what it called a state of war and threatened to shut down a border factory complex that's the last major symbol of interkorean cooperation. in fact, the peninsula has been in a technical state of war for 60 years. for all the rhetoric including a vow to launch a nuclear strike on the u.s., experts believe a full-sized conflict is extremely unlikely. but the growing tensions during which the north has renounced an armistice and cut lines across have raised fears here that a misjudgment between the sides could lead to a clash which could easily escalate. don't forget, also, that the u.s. has just under 30,000 troops stationed here. for its part, the white house said this weekend that the u.s. is taking the new threat seriously but also noted that pyongyang does have a history of bellicose rhetoric. richard? >> ian williams, thank you so much. n

that of castro in cuba, or kim jong-un in north korea. but the big difference is we have economic relations with venezuela. explain that sort of, i guess that sort of odd dynamic. >> well, the dynamic, chuck, is that chavez was basically pragmatic in his relationship with the u.s. venezuela's our fourth largest oil supplier, they're members of opec, venezuela is like their political -- oil is like their political weapon, but whenever it was with the u.s., they never used it. and chavez, it's all the citgo stations in the u.s. chavez never used it. however, the last 14 years the relationship has been very frigid, and i think it is an opportunity for us to step in in a new relationship with venezuela. it's an important oil-producing country. there's going to be an election there. the opposition candidate is pro-u.s. maduro, the vice president is not pro-u.s., but i think is going to be more pragmatic with chavez. but in the region, i think we have an opportunity to make inroads in the region because several countries had started to follow chavez against the u.s. in the region. >> right. that'
